Taste of Summer

That the first new post here in five months is a drink recommendation unintentionally sums things up pretty well. We'll get caught up on all the distractions later. For now allow me to present the taste of summer, the wild raspberry thyme spritzer.

A friend of mine is hosting a summer solstice party in a few days. As I just picked a plethora of wild raspberries, it seemed like a no-brainer to make something with them to take along. I followed this recipe for raspberry thyme simple syrup, substituting the wild blackcaps that are abundant in SW Ohio. We plan to serve it on the solstice with gin and a splash of seltzer. It's pictured above with just the seltzer.  (Good thing, too, because I just downed the entire thing while typing this!)
